Integrating Sampling & Analysis

Combining two patented gas technologies – GasPT® and VE Technology® – Orbital’s integrated GasPTi solution provides gas sampling and analysis through continuous measurement, requiring no carrier or calibration gases or maintenance.

Orbital’s VE Technology uses specialised sampling probes that eliminate vortex shedding to take smaller, more consistent samples that reach the analyser faster. This process removes hazardous contamination which allows for a cleaner sample that improves response, enhances accuracy, decreases costs and reduces waste.

GasPT technology measures and analyses the VE gathered samples, calculating thermal conductivity, speed of sound and CO2 in the natural gas, giving you the Calorific Value needed to control your system.

  • Natural gas quality
  • Fiscal metering
